Ukulele Jam Info Page


Hi there! Great to have you here, and can’t wait to see you at our next jam!

I currently host an online ukulele jam 1st Saturdays, 1-2:30pm PT, live on Zoom. Fingers crossed for in person jams here in Portland, OR, beginning again in 2023…

Each jam, we play songs out of a common songbook. You can download (and print, if you like) the latest version below. Sometimes, I’ll include extra song charts for a special / themed jam — scroll down for details regarding our jam, and for the “archives” from past jams, as well.

Jams are free and open to all. If you’re able to offer a donation, teaching music is my livelihood, so I am very grateful! Here are some ways you can donate:

  • Via credit card or Paypal on my website: donate to the Zoom jam here
  • Venmo me @averyhillstudio
  • Send me a check, made out to “Avery Hill”, at: Avery Hill, PO Box 40073, Portland OR 97240.

Learning to count folks in, and keeping time so everyone ends together, too, deepens the musical skills you already have and provides such a fulfilling musical challenge for those who love to play with others.  Learn more and register here.
  • Songbooks provided, but feel free to bring your copy of the songbook (download below). We’ll also open with. our 2023 Dia de los Muertos packet of music:
